If the correction is lifting and being struck by the hammer the correction tape may be on wrong, the dull side must face the ribbon. The other easy possibility is that the ribbon is very old or non correctable. It should have a yellow or orange knob not red or blue.

A correctable ribbon should be correctable. Is the ribbon being lifted up high enough to correct?
Is there any letters on the correction ribbon and is the ribbon installed correctly? Old ribbons lose their tackiness over time, try advancing the ribbon by hand to get to fresher ribbon.

Ribbon will not advance


mark the ribbon where it turns, where there is a pin of the typewriter passing through the ribbon,mark it with a white marker.
and type something, if it doesnt turn, you know the machine has a problem.
or try everytime pressing on the ribbon, if it works you know the ribbon is coming up, check if the correction ribbon is placed good.behind the correctable ribbon.

Replaced Typewriter Ribbon & Now Correction Tape doesn't work


Is the ribbon that you installed a correctable one? It should have a yellow or orange knob to turn it. If that knob is blue, you installed a multistrike or non-correctable ribbon.

The only other thing is you have the correction tape in backwards

Correct key


Two possibilities, one the correction tape is twisted and the wrong side is .facing the paper. The shinny side should be facing you, the dull side facing the paper. Second possibility you must make sure the ribbon is compatible with the correction tape. There are 2 types of ribbons. A correctable one (orange or yellow knob) and a multi strike (blue or purple knob on ribbon cartridge). The lift off correction tape (orange or yellow spools) only works with the correctable ribbon and the cover up correction tape (blue) works with the multistrike ribbon.

Correction ribbon


You must make sure the black ribbon is a "correctable" ribbon and not a "multi strike" ribbon. You can usually tell by the color of the dial on the ribbon. A correctable ribbon is either yellow or orange. If it sis any other color then is will not correct. Hope this helps.
